Tuna Shake Anyone?

This just popped in my head as I was reading the “favorite sandwich” thread.

Does anyone remember the uhh, “Tuna Shake” discussions that folks used to have on misc.fitness.weights back in the early to mid-nineties??

I just remember a group of guys known as the Dallas-Fort Worth Assault Crew extolling the virtues of the Tuna Shake

I googled it and lo and behold the website is still up:

my favorite quote from the site:

"Dump it all in a blender for a few seconds and frappe for a few seconds til smooth. Serve with a stalk of celery and a Shot of Stoli( a good vasodialtor for you bodybuilders…the powerlifters are going “a vasodi…WHAT”) "

I remember that, but never had the stones to try one…


I choke down tuna and protein powder 2 or 3x a week…


I use my own recipe twice a day:

  • I can flaked tuna in water (133g - drained weight)
  • 4 raw egg whites
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • complete up to 500 ml with V8

I blend it all to a smooth drink using a Braun hand mixer.
